Tootsie Roll Sweet Sensation Polyester Carpet by Tarkett is a soft plush solution Dyed Product. Solution dying is kind of like the color of a carrot. When you cut a carrot, the color is orange through and through. The color remains the same throughout the carrot. Solution-dyed carpet is a polymer in the form of a pellet. This pellet is already the color of the carpet. The pellet is then extruded into the carpet fiber where it is never dyed.
There are some serious benefits to a solution-dyed carpet. For starters, it is one of the most colorfast materials in the industry. For example, spaces that get lots of natural sunlight, won’t fade. Also, you could use a 50/50 solution of bleach and water to spot clean the carpet. Because it starts the color, it will not fade.
Carpet warms up a room and reduces energy bills with the natural insulation of the carpet. Polyester carpeting is inherently stain resistant. When it comes to stains it outperforms both nylon and wool. Additionally, polyester carpeting is very soft and significantly less expensive than either nylon or wool. Because of the price advantage, we will tend to see polyester used in newly built homes. You will also see it in existing homes going on the market. Previously polyester carpets had poor resiliency and tended to crush under heavy traffic areas. Well, not anymore. Through the years technology has improved the performance of polyester carpets. It is much more durable than the old generations of polyester. Also, polyester comes in much more vibrant colors.
Today, indoor air quality is an important environmental consideration. Especially since we spend approximately 90 percent of our time indoors. In 1992 The Carpet and Rug Institute (CRI) launched its Green Label Plus Program. They tested carpet, padding, and adhesives. Of course, this helps identify products with very low emissions of Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs). In the 2000s CRI launched the Green Label Plus Programs. This added Carpet Adhesives, and Cushion. This helped enhance programs by setting a higher standard for indoor air quality. As a result, this helped customers identify products with low emitting VOCs. Using scientifically established standards, the Green Label Plus Program symbolizes commitment. Look for the CRI Green Label Plus logo when shopping for flooring.
